Tkenv UI font is now adjustable, and the default fonts are chosen from the font families available on the system in a preference order (for UI font: Ubuntu, Arial, Verdana, Helvetica, Tahoma, DejaVu Sans...)

On Linux, the above fix only seems to properly work with Tcl/Tk 8.5. Version 8.4 often doesn't find fonts installed on the system, and has otherwise a significantly worse look&feel (e.g. checkboxes are displayed in the old Tk style, as indented/outdented red rectangles).

Use Tcl/Tk 8.5 if possible!
